I would like to r&r my 3.5 (possibly with a 3.7 from an 07 if I can find one) my truck is a 2004 crew cab 4x4 with a tuff country 4” lift. I have been thumbing through the 355 for about a week getting great info. I just have a couple questions.
1, I will be pulling engine only without trans and have to be able to roll the truck back and forth in my garage so can the engine be pulled without messing with front axle?
2. Is there a special tool to get the top transmission bolts out, and a tool needed to remove the fuel lines.
Thanks guys I’ve done a couple engine r&r’s on Toyota a few years back so I hav e basic knowledge, by no means a pro!

You will have to drop the front axle for the oil pan to clear. I'd leave it in neutral or remove the driveshafts and chock the tires.

Disconnect the wiring at the PCM and leave attached to the engine.

When I replaced my tranny the last time, I attacked from under with a bunch of extensions and a u joint on the socket. Don't recall having one on the impact side.
